When we first imagine our dream house, we don’t really care about what type of a roof it is going to have. But, then comes a time when we need to start thinking about it, and decide what kind of a roof we are going to put there: the metal roofing, or the asphalt shingles. Sure, some people prefer one over another, and it is easy for them to make this decision, but this isn’t the case with everyone. So, in order to help us with this decision, we have traveled all the way to Twin Falls, Idaho, so that we could talk with the people from Crist & Sons Contractors, a general contractor company the deal with new home construction, and work as remodeling contractors, and roofers as well.
Basically, these home builders have told us that this is a decision that we all have to make for ourselves. They could only supply us with some information that could help us make a decision, but they really should decide for us, because after all, it is our house they’ll be working on.
The people of this company say that it is the people who immediately know what they want that made the best decisions. That means that the people who have given this some thought already know the answer to this question. That is why it is always wise to read up on this before you call the contractors. Then, you won’t waste any time, and you can immediately tell them what you want.
Some people believe that the metal roofing is a lot cheaper than the asphalt shingles, and that is why they pick it. Well, it is usually the case, but as with everything, if you want something that has some quality to it, don’t expect to pay cheap for it. Such is the case with metal roofing’s as well; some of them are cheap, but there are either really bad, or they just look bad. And why would you put something ugly on your home?
When it comes to asphalt shingles, they usually are somewhat more expensive than the metal roofing, but they do look a lot nicer. People usually decide to go with these because they have some traditional feeling to them. You can never see some of the older houses with a metal roofing; and after all, it would look silly, wouldn’t it?
So, at the end, which one is better, the metal roofing or the asphalt shingles? Well, as we have already said, it is a decision that every person needs to make for himself, and the contractors can only tell them a bit ore about each of them. The people of Sherwin Williams Paint agree with this, and they also add that you really ought to look around you, and see what the people around you are putting on their roof. You don’t want to stick out like a sore thumb, but at the end, you should really choose the thing you believe is best, and the thing you believe looks better.
